Finnish Melodic Death Metal masters Insomnium are heading to Australia for their first ever headline tour.

After a successful run of shows in 2015 supporting The Haunted, the call has been answered; Insomium return.

From the land of a thousand lakes comes a band with a thousand melodies that spawn a thousand emotions. Across six albums now Insomnium have set melancholy, sorrow and the weight of long winter nights against the first sunbeams of a spring morning, beauty and hope. The result is a breathtaking journey in crafting melodic metal perfection. As they age, the heavy parts become heavier and the contrasts become greater.

Brutal blasting that ventures into the realm of black metal, gut wrenching balladry or straight up pounding rock. Insomnium take you on an emotional roller coaster.

Insomnium mark 20 years as a band this year after being formed in the Finnish university city of Joensuu back in 1997.
Tour by tour and album by album these passionate musicians edged their way to the very top of the scene to now become the spearhead of Finnish melodic death metal. Their evolution continues…

They are touring in support of their latest musical epic, ‘Winters Gate‘, a multi award winning album and a defining moment in the melodic death metal genre.

Along for the ride is Australia’s own melodic metal powerhouse РOrpheus Omega.

The band has toured relentlessly in support of their most recent album, ‘Partum Vita Mortem‘ and will make one final trek around the country before heading into the studio for their next album.

Tickets for the East Coast dates are on sale now.
